The mission of Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK) since its founding in 1988 has been ensuring every child has someone who is just crazy about them. AASK focuses on finding family relationships between children and caring adults because we know it makes a difference.
Healthy human connections shape the circuitry of a child’s brain and lay the foundation for emotional and academic development.
AASK recruits, trains and supports families to help children through adoption, foster care and mentoring. AASK believes that the emotional connections established by enduring relationships help children heal from the trauma that triggered removal from their homes and improves their chances for life-long success. – less
